How weekly bike rides with a group of supportive women showed me a route to joy

When Tanya Frank joined a group of ‘joyriders’, she rediscovered her love of cycling and found a caring communityI always thought that joyriding meant nicking cars and taking them for a spin, often when drunk. It was what some of the wayward lads did on the Chingford Hall council estate where I grew up. So, I was surprised when the Waltham Forest newsletter reported a different kind of joyriding: a cycling group that is free, for women, and that loans bikes to the members who need them. It has g...

By Kilian Back to Black Perfume Review

By Kilian Back to Black Eau de Parfum is categorized as a “gourmand tobacco harmony” by the brand with “languid honey” that has “sweet spices” and “smoky incense essence” with “vanilla absolute.” While the opening was a burst of raspberry liqueur, the majority of the wear lived in a warm and cozy cloud of cherry and almond that eventually sweetened further with vanilla and often retained depth from the inclusion of honey in the heart and then later on amber in the dryd...

There’s a new till-free Amazon Fresh shop near me – so I popped in for spring rolls and simmering despair

Capitalism’s great trick is to make us long for the useless and unnecessary. Under the bright lights, I felt that itch starting upAll I can say is that I should have known better. No, my decision to visit the branch of Amazon Fresh that has just opened near where I live was not at all a good match for the sweeping month-long programme of mindfulness and joy-sparking I tentatively set in motion for myself on 1 January. But there I was all the same, curiosity having got the better of me. And yes,...

The footballer, 40, on playing for Dulwich Hamlet, worrying about dementia, fans teasing him for being so tall and writing poems for his wifeMy first love was Italian football. It was so flamboyant. Gianluca Vialli was my idol; he had this effortless style. I was also transfixed by the Football Italia show on Channel 4, James Richardson sitting by a swimming pool with his pink Gazzetta dello Sport and his tiny little cup. I said to Dad, “Why is his cup so small?” He had to explain it was an espr...

Uphill hikes and downward dogs in the Black Mountains of Wales

A women’s yoga and fell walking break in the Welsh borders leaves our writer with aching muscles but a heart full of joyBruce Chatwin was 15 when he first cycled through the Vale of Ewyas, a place he would later refer to as “one of the emotional centres of his life”. Wordsworth and Turner also loved this rough knuckle of mountains abutting the England-Wales border. I was 20 when I first visited, and was so smitten by the swooping hills that I leapt out of the car and ran barefoot up Hay Bluff, s...

I grew up in a crematorium – we learned not to look too alive in front of the mourners

It was a regular family home – just one in which I learned not to run around the garden when the funeral processions passed, and to jump over, never on, any bluish grey powder I might findWhen I was eight, roller skates were things you stepped into while wearing your outdoor shoes. They had laced, red leather toe-pieces that you pushed your shoes into, and red straps to buckle round your ankles. Two chunky black wheels sat either side of your toes, and two either side of your ankles. The metal b...

Lacey Haynes and Flynn Talbot want to improve the world’s love life – starting by doing it live on air in every episodeLacey Haynes is a women’s “intuitive healer”, and guides couples in yoga-informed “elevated sex”.

Tim Dowling: I fall asleep thinking about the impossibility of each of the repairs I am facing

Things fall apart … unfortunately there is rather more to know about door handles and cat flaps than I imaginedIt is the season of things coming off in your hands: drawer knobs, door latches, cupboard handles. Everywhere is disintegration and fatigue, down to the very metal. Reach out, turn it, pull it towards you, and it’s yours.On Monday evening the youngest one snaps off the brass latch handle while trying to open the front door. He shows me the piece, shorn away by the force of his grip. Con...
